Here at Contech, you can start your degree program by paying only 30% of the tuition and graduate from your degree program. After graduation and after landing a high-paying job then you can start paying your rest of tuition in small installments, thanks to Income-Based Repayment Agreements (IBRA). And if you don’t make money after graduation, you don’t have to pay it. It’s that simple. So this is how we support our students financially.

As data accumulates across broad sectors of industry and academia we see a need for data scientists equipped with skills to assist with data-based decision making. For example, businesses are using data to determine insurance coverage, to make marketing decisions, to offer recommendations to customers, and to provide more effective health care. A famous example from academia is the determination of the Higgs Boson from simulated data with machine learning methods.

The Master of Science in Computer Science - Data Science from Contemporary Technology University covers basic and advanced essentials in statistical inference, machine learning, data visualization, data mining, and big data methods, all of which are key for a trained data scientist. In order to be selected for our program, we require a basic background in calculus, linear algebra, probability, computer programming, data structures, and algorithms. Our program is spread across 30 credits and contains projects involving big datasets, classification methods, variable selection, and deep learning to name a few.

Students will be taking 10 courses over a period of 1 year. Apart from core courses, Contech offers noncredit Personal Development & Employability courses to boost your hiring progress even before the graduation.
